Auto PO process PR quantity change manually then use ME59N to convert into PO

Hi.

Auto PO process is maintained, In material master, Auto PO check and special procurement key maintained to buy material from cross company plant AA19 (Inter company STO), Vendor master Auto PO cheked, Source list is maintained with one source AA19 plant, Info record is maintained with price.

MRP generated PR and Thru ME59N convert the PR in PO.

Problem arises when customer order is for 100 qty and MRP generated PR for 100 qty but user has changed the quantity to 200 and save the PR. then go to ME59N and try to convert PR into PO, PR converted in to PO but with zero net price and "Free" indicator checked. ( It means that system is asking to check IR indicator in Invoice tab at Item Detail). why system is not taking the price and from where Free indicator is checked?

If system generate MRP PR and if I will change quantity and then go to ME21n and take reference to MRP generated PR which I changed Quantity, system showing net price is blank with Free check indicator.

Is system behavior is correct

Thanks

Shyam

    What is the source of your price determination?

    Check these below OSS notes

    1872221 - T-code ME59N : 'Invoice Receipt' (field REPOS) indicator manually changed in Purchase Requisition is not transferred to Purchase Order

    393367 - Price is not transferred from Preq to PO

    • Thanks for you response

      I checked the Inter company configuration and it is as per the blog you mentioned. Additionally it is set auto PO process which required source list assigned to it, if source list present then MRP will create PR with item category U

      Thanks

    If the user changed the price to zero then of course he is forced to remove the invoice receipt indicator, which in turn hides the condition tab.

    If the user just change the price from 10 to 9 then the described effect should not happen and you either faced a SAP bug or the bug is caused by own developments .

    Please check the change log in ME53N and also check weather the invoice receipt indicator is still there.

    And if the invoice receipt indicator is listed in the change log then please read the OSS note 1872221 as already suggested by Dibyendu.

    If you dont know how to access OSS notes then please ask your supervisor and others in your team or search the community.

    • IR indicator was not ther earlier when MRP generated PR

      In change log user has changed the Price and no IR indicator is ther in ME53N

      one more point is when converting the PR to PO thru MD04 manually, system is giving warning "Cross company code stock transfer: Check IR indicator" in PO screen

      Thanks

    This message ""Cross company code stock transfer: Check IR indicator" is MEPO106.

    So the question is basically why is the price from the beginning zero?

    How is your price procedure, is it based on the material price with a surcharge?

    Is the material price still zero when the MRP is already executed?

    Did the user eventually change the document type from UB to NB too?

    • Thanks Jurgen for your response

      I know PR valuation price comes from Material Master, I mentioned that If no manual intervention (no Price/quantity change done by user) in MRP generated PR (STPR) and convert the same into PO thru ME59N then net price is coming in PO from Info record.- (This is automated process and it is working fine ).

      Problem comes when MRP is generated PR and user changed the PR Quantity and convert the same in to PO thru ME59N then system will show PO with zero price

      OSS note customization is already implemented and PO price field is set "2 As net price"

      Also IR indicator is not available in change log.

      Thanks

    Just to wrap up again:

    the invoice receipt indicator is in the PR before the quantity gets changed and it is still in the PR after the quantity was changed, but it is not copied to the PO when created with ME59N.

    Is the quantity copied correct?

    Are you in a AFS system or any other Industry solution?

    How is the result if you use ME59?

    This sounds all very weird. I have no insight into IS-Oil, just know that ME59 and ME59N are both available, price adoption and invoice indicator adoption from purchase requisition is done in ME59 automatically while it depends on customizing for price adoption in ME59N

    That not even the quantity is taken over is totally confusing, from where should it take the old quantity? This must either be IS-Oil specific or homemade, I can't imagine that ME59N is taken it from the change history.

    I add this question to IS-OIL tag, maybe someone is around there who has some deep knowledge there. Based on what you said I would recommend to get in touch with SAP Support.

    I personally would first investigate why EBAN-REPOS is empty from the beginning. What is in the item category of the requisition and what in the PO, was it changed in the requisition? Was it U (or 7 in the table) in the requisition and is blank ( 0 ) now?

    Thanks for your reply Jurgen !

    In my system invoice receipt indicator is not available before and after change of PR quantity, even If i create a manual STPR, invoice receipt indicator is not coming in PR.

    Is the quantity copied correct?

    - Quantity is copied is not correct. PR qty 6000 LBs , Changed to 8000LBs, after Using ME59N it is copied 6000LBs

    Are you in a AFS system or any other Industry solution?

    - No AFS or Retails system , we are using Oil & Gas

    How is the result if you use ME59?

    - If I use ME59, Price & quantity both is coming correct.

    So user need to use t- code ME59 if they do manual changes in PR and if no change in PR then he can use ME59N.

    Why system is not doing the same thing thru ME59N, I can understand it is standard design of SAP

    Thanks
